Abstract

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a safe diagnostic and therapeutic procedure. Splenic injury after ERCP is extremely rare and only two cases have been reported in the English literature. A subscapsular splenic hematoma is reported after ERCP and the mechanism of injury and possible preventive measures are discussed.
